After the podium ceremony, Maxime Robin told us about their race:
At the start we knew that this race in Dijon was going to be very complicated in terms of weather, alternating dry and more than wet track. Indeed, when the start was set, the track was greasy, then dried up, before violent showers made the track even more trappery and the Norma even more difficult to control. When my brother Arnold gave me the wheel after one hour and twenty minutes, we already had a good lead. During my relay, it rained unceasingly but the car was really very pleasant to drive whether the track is dry or wet, our Norma was very healthy, very stable and above all very efficient.
And he continues and adds:
After two hours, I handed over the steering wheel to my brother, with thirty minutes left and a very wide gap as we were three laps ahead before my stop. Arnold ensured the end of the race and slightly slowed down to avoid any risk and ensure our victory. The TFT team has made a great strategy for our relays and the use of our two sets of rain tyres. This is a good sign for our moral before the third round of the Ligier Cup in Spa on May 25. So far, we have finished twice second at Le Mans and fourth with our Ligier JS2R of the Jean-René Defournoux Zosh Competition team including the second Lgier JS2R of the crew with Jean René and Hugo Rossati, who won both races.
Next round for LMP3, May 24, 25 and 26, on the Slovakia Ring.
